Children's Ministry

Joyous Journey: K4 through 5th grade

Sunday Mornings at 9:00am

The name Joyous Journey was specifically chosen to emphasis the excitement we want the children to experience on their path to learning about God.  Emelia Petersen, our children’s ministry leader, and an adult volunteer from the congregation offer the children engaging opportunities that guide them to living a life to honor God’s plan.  Joyous Journey engages children from preschool through fifth grade in regular rotations of art, drama and storytelling, teaching the classic Bible lessons through active participation. Activities are focused around creating opportunities for our children to learn about Christ's life, our church's mission, each other, and our community.

Nursery Care

Sunday mornings at 9:00am and 10:45am

Our nursery provides a safe, cheerful place for parents and caregivers to leave infants and young children through age 4. Staff workers, Liz Decker or Barb Glass, along with an adult volunteer from the congregation, provide loving care for the children. (All adult nursery workers have passed a background check.) The children will have the opportunity to hear about God, to play with age appropriate toys, to put together puzzles, to sing, and to have stories read to them while their parents/caregivers attend the church service.

Special Activities

Educational and social opportunities for the children of OCC happen throughout the year. Look for more information to come.
